I keep hearing about new procedures which use injectables in place of surgery, things like the Botox browlift and the liquid facelift. How effective are these procedures?
I think that injectable treatments can improve the appearance of patients that are not ready for surgery or can be combined with surgery to achieve an overall better outcome. Botox can be used to soften or remove the forehead wrinkles as well as to elevate the eyebrows. There is a limit to the amount of lift Botox can have on the eyebrows. The liquid facelift is a term used to describe the use of fillers and Botox to rejuvenate the face. Fillers are used in the cheeks, nasolabial folds, and in the lower face to soften the lines and augment the cheeks.
